This palette knife painting is of the Brook that runs behind the development where I live.

“I was inspired by the raw beauty of this area in Maine.  The gorgeous rocky coast provides endless subject matter for artists.  I feel the importance of national parks such as Acadia can be difficult to put into words.

Tom Whiting

 

Artist Statement:

Tom Whiting is an artist who works in a variety of media, concentrating on digital painting in recent years. Tom investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of color and texture and the limits of vision based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting an actual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.

His artworks are an investigation into representations of (outwardly) concrete places and situations as well as depictions and ideas that can only be realized in art. The work tries to express this with the help of technology. His works directly respond to the surrounding environment and use everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point.

About these Pieces:

Lolita’s art is often inspired  by nature and nature’s colors. “Rebirth”  and “In the Garden” was inspired by flowers growing and nature coming back to life in the spring after the cold winter. “The Song Tree “: listening the many of kinds of birds talking  to each other,  during my nature walks. Listening to my husband repeating their calls and the birds resounding to him over and over.  It is also fun to watch the birds building their nests in the spring. Occasionally I see birds feed their babies then give them  flying lessons through my dining room window. These simple joys and relaxation has made life stresses and  the Coronavirus easier to manage.  Cool, warm, and complimentary colors were introduced. In the series of glass paintings. Colors can affect moods, reactions, environmental comfort, seasons, energy, discomfort and temperatures.

Margarita Krylova

 

Artist Statement:

The focus of my work is the inevitable link between humans and the natural world. In my portraiture, nature is both the backdrop for the subject’s experience, as well as an expression of their internal state. Nature becomes a vehicle for soul searching – my subjects return to what makes life possible and connect with an entity that is infinitely more powerful and eternal than any individual and all of society. It is humbling, and perhaps calming, to realize that even at best of times, there is only so much in our control.

Kathleen McNeil

 

Artist Statement:

For many years as an attorney I photographed crime scenes at all times of the day, in all types of light. Capturing the details of the scene from all perspectives – laying on the ground or standing against a wall – it trained my eye and taught me to see.

I have participated in juried competitions at the Arlington Center for the Arts, the First Legacy Juried Art Exhibition in Easton, the Helen Bumpus Gallery in Duxbury, and the Tewksbury Art Center where I won third place and an honorable mentioned. The Lowell Community Health center accepted three of my prints for inclusion in their art collection.

The following galleries have exhibited my work: the Stove Factory in Somerville, the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University, the Griffin Gallery in Winchester, the Artists’ League, Health Fitness in Arlington, and Gallery Z in Lowell.

Ortha Splingaerd

 

Artist Statement:

From the moment I could pick up a crayon I’ve been obsessed with color. I narrowly avoided being thrown out of kindergarten in 1949 for using the “wrong” colors, but purple and green were my favorites and I thought they made beautiful hair. While it is rare for me to create two alike, my paintings all have a common element – a carefully selected palette for a bold, joyful color burst that soothes the soul.

Stephen Beccia

 

Artist Statement:

I am a member at the Loading Dock Gallery and at the Stove Factory in Charlestown MA where I have art on display and for sale.

Since I started painting abstracts and cubist-style drawings, I’ve had a vision to create art and lots of it. From lucid dreams to moments of anxiety, it’s important to express these thoughts, feelings, and emotions before they pass me by. To capture an expression is therapeutic to me, whether it’s happiness, sadness, distress, or pure goofiness, I wish for everyone to see it through my eyes as it plays on the canvas.

Every painting is always a new adventure. I take to the canvas with charcoal, marker, brush, paint, and knife. The medium materializes upon the complexity and timing of the piece. Oil paint means patience, something I often lack, but work hard to achieve. Acrylic paint is used most often when the moment of inspiration comes, and I want to capture it in one sitting.

 Being a musician for most of my life, I love to entertain people, and I wish to do the same with my bold colors, brush strokes, geometry, and line work. I’m not about perfection, instead it’s about the concept, the idea that moves me. Showing my work and flaws along the way is just part of the artistic journey; it’s the roadmap I pave and leave behind.

Iman Aurora Sakkaf

 

Artist Statement:

Iman Aurora Sakkaf’s work is representative of the nostalgic and hopeful.  Fascinated by the dance between moment and memory, she marvels at the individual’s ability to inhabit multiple places at once.  This dance can be bittersweet; nostalgia grips the soul.  This dance, though, by its very existence, is filled with hope.  Reality is ever changing, moving, brimming with possibility.  She explores this miraculous quality in her paintings.

Raksha Soni

 

Artist Statement:

After 20 years of diligent work as a software Engineer for Siebel Systems and Oracle, Raksha Soni began an epic second act: to follow her true calling for Art. She studied fine arts while she was in school and college. She founded Brush & Paisley in 2017, to bring her art to new audiences. As an artist she is prolific and has had over a dozen exhibitions where she has showcased her signature style; from intricate Indian folk art to lush, opulent landscapes that capture the nostalgia and emotion of the nature.

In her own words “Art is a foundational part of my life, and I try to spend my free time experimenting with it. I express my gratitude, emotions, and admiration for nature and Mother Earth through color. My inspiration comes from the many sources: places I travel to, nature, architecture, culture and the people around me. The creative process gives me tremendous joy, satisfaction, and a sense of great accomplishment, and I hope this beautiful journey of self-discovery continues forever.”

Siri Smedvig

Artist Statement:

I was born and raised a violinist; my family’s musical gifts were nurtured in me from the age of five. For this reason, music informs my painting and collages. I am guided  by my inner source, and, in synesthetic gestures, my music informs my art: I create sound pictures in paint and paper. Formal concerns of technique and interpretation are always in partnership with my inner source, my primary creative well. From this well, I record symbolic, potent images of the reality underlying appearances. In layering memory, present awareness, and visible reality, I invoke alchemical processes, or, mystical rituals, and this interplay of visible and invisible leaves behind a record of mark making, paper, and paint. 

 

About the Piece:

This piece is arranged like an altar with earth, air, fire, water. The ladder has the colors of the chakras and a crown of eyes. There is a unicorn horn and a golden fairy wing. All are symbolic.

Katherine Teele

Artist Statment:

I’ve found that being creative makes me feel good — like daily exercise or meditation. In my journal, I wrote: Painting can feel like riding a wave into shore.

It is thrilling and has moments that feel ‘out-of-body.’ Like listening to music, it rouses an emotion. I love creating with paint, and when people look at my paintings, I hope they feel a similar feeling to what I do when I create them. Strong and bold colors, rhythmic shapes — these have always been part of my painting style and noticing them in nature inspires me to paint. My subject matter evolves. I like to paint in series and will explore different subject matter for varying stretches of time. I need to connect to my subject so some subjects will stick around longer than others.

Artist Statement:

My name is Tory Roberts. I’m a wood burning artist who focuses primarily on, portraits, animals and landscapes. I’ve been an artist my entire life but discovered wood burning just last year. This medium gave me a way to incorporate art into life beyond just hanging it on the walls. I want art to be something that can be everywhere and can be touched without fear of smudging or scratching it. I hope to continue finding ways to bring art into people’s lives beyond just the visual aspect of it.

Stephen Clements

 

Artist Statement:

My works are usually created from compulsion not planning. Often colorful. Once an idea has begun I continue with abandon, but  break to study, and finesse it until it means something to me. My canvas/surface of choice is plywood because it can be abused, hit, scratched, smashed, broken. 4’ x 4’ is my favorite. Usually abstract, but if something figurative is forcing its way out I will go with it. 

Both these pieces were created from sketches where I was experimenting with connecting shapes. Then enhanced to bring out the images I saw in them.
